Product Description

More stories about the two great chums: "The Dance Recital," "The French Lesson," "The Disguise," "The Beach," and "The Garden." George and Martha, those incomparable hippos, will delight readers of all ages. James Marshall's five stories are really five mini-farces in which the dignity and the bulk of the hippos is in contrast with the ludicrousness of their situations.

Author Bio

James Marshall (1942–1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life’s work as one of the finest creators of children’s books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.
